National Sorry Day – 26 May 2022
National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how Australians can all play a part in the healing process for the people and nation. While this date carries great significance for the Stolen Generations and other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, it is also commemorated by Australians right around the country. Students participated in a special liturgy in their House groups. Activities for Reconciliation Week will take place in the undercroft area each day.

With the increasing numbers of both staff and students experiencing COVID, on some days it has been challenging to find relief teachers. This is not unique to HCC. The staff are working collaboratively to ensure that learning programs are continued and communicated effectively to relief staff. There will be times when a Junior class may experience a few different teachers during the day, or week, if their main class teacher is absent. Secondary students may have the opportunity of meeting other existing teaching staff members who may replace their regular teacher. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to work through the impacts of the COVID.
